Boys hard at play.🖤 With spring here again it’s been so good to get the boys out playing several times a day. The trampoline is up, the summer toys are out, and the wood pile is being used for whatever they think of.
My boys are extremely active and the best place to release their pent up energy is outdoors. Whether it’s sports, jumping, climbing, or building, when they finally tumble back in, our homeschool is calmer, and better for learning. Then when they get squirrelly again, I just let them back out.
Kolton’s building skills are rubbing off on his sister! Shayne loves her new DIY Steamroller Car Tool Set from @picassotiles She is able to take the whole thing apart and put it back together with the included tools🛠 While her princess dresses are adorable, I want her to learn how to use her hands to build things just like her Mama💕
Check out my stories and swipe up to see Shaynes mini toy review on YouTube😊It is also in my bio👆🏼 It’s her first of many❤️ #sp#toyreview#ThankyouPicassoTiles
This picture is the perfect representation of us right now: the kids are loving being back outside, playing together but still kinda separately, Ari charging down the path like a madman who gets his thrills the faster he goes and Fia being the absolute boss at the back carrying "fresh flowers" in her pockets and telling us all what to do. Love my littles ...but thankful they're both sound asleep right now 💖
Did you know that Americans alone use over 500 million plastic straws every day? These seemingly innocent items are too light to be caught by recycling sorters and are overwhelming our beaches and killing off marine life. This #earthday make a commitment to join the #stopsucking movement and reduce your family's plastic straws use.
“Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy; let them sing before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.”

En el Día de la Tierra, la madre naturaleza nos está regalando una majestuosa tormenta ⛈️
He sido muy creativa intentando explicar a los niños qué es un trueno para quitarles el miedo.
Buenas noches, bombones
We went to the city for my birthday yesterday and had so much fun! We saw the @glenkeaneprd exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum. It was so inspiring and the kids LOVED the museum and the model of early Disneyland. The museum employees were thoroughly impressed at their knowledge of Disneyland 🙈😂 We played on the beach at Crissy Field and had dinner and dessert in Cow Hollow. I am definitely feeling my age today as the trip exhausted me and I stayed in bed until 10:30 🙈🙈🙈 #thisis33#siblinghoodlove#twins#smalpresets
Ever feel like you might just have taken a little too much on?! You have a week to catch up on so might be a long one, please bear with me! 😅
In positive news, week one of home schooling went really really well. Forest school, music class, swimming, a trip to the Red Cross bookshop, garden time and work books filled our days. The weather has been unreal which helps.
Then this weekend I was away helping at the @tots100 #flearetreat which was a fab (but exhausting!!) few days. I got to meet some seriously lovely fellow bloggers and stay at the stunning Croydon Hall. There was a heck of a lot of moving, carrying, setting up, packing down, washing up and cooking though! 🤣 (I missed these two a lot as well!) Then ahead is another full week of home school, starting at a running club, swimming lessons, brownies and forest school.
Then the weekend brings the @cotswoldbabytoddlershow at Cheltenham Town Hall where I’m giving a talk on how you can make money from blogging. (Tickets still available, only £5!) and finally Sunday night is the @cotswoldbloggerawards held at @babel_cheltenham where @emmaand3 @zaphira_miniaturemusic and my hard work will hopefully pay off into a wonderful, cocktail and cake filled evening! There are still some tickets available for that as well if you are in the area and fancy a fun night out! £15 a ticket which includes a cocktail (which was specially created for us!) cake AND live music! We even have the gorgeous @tobyandroo joining us for the night!!! Then I would like to collapse in a heap please, but it’s more home school and finally another blogger conference at the weekend!
Who am I going to see at BlogOn? 😊
Well done if you got that far!!! How are you all doing?!
